That's an aspect of EU copyright law I'm not aware of. Can you
tell me which Berne provision or EU directive this is?

Moral rights only allow you to act against mutilation of
the work and lack of proper attribution. And you have the right
to decide on _first_ publication. But once you publish, the
work is on the market and your rights are exhausted. I don't see
a basis for doing a recall.
